KEEP IT SIMPLE

For restaurants and food-based businesses try these tips:

  • 3 - 5 item menu | Include at least one vegetarian option
  • To-Go / Take-Out options to keep seating open.
  • Change hours to be open during the busiest times of Scream on the Green and Safe-Trick-O-Treat | 10 am - 4 pm

SALE DAYS

Your business is going to be in front of  6000-8000 families--many of whom are NOT from Novato. By offering a sale to potential customers it may help you increase sales.

Customers Only - thank you

Many businesses have concerns about bathroom use. Simply p[ut a sign out that states your business' bathroom policy clearly. Something like "restroom reserved for paying customers only" Do not forget to say 'please' and 'thank you.'

COUPONS

Print out coupons to give away with treats. As families come to trick-o-treat you have a unique chance to leave them with a deal that may entice them to return to your store at a later date. Giving away coupons is easy and can lead to future sales. You may contact the Chamber if you want help designing a striking coupon. 

LEAVE THEM HOME

The Chamber has done all it can to ask that dogs remain home during the event, but there will always be those who bring pets to events--no matter how chaotic the event may be. We suggest placing signs clearly in front of your store to help enforce your store's policy.

Limit Choices

For restaurants, limit the options for guests and prepare to run that menu during the event and after. This makes purchasing easy, but let regular customers know this change is coming so they aren't caught off-guard.
